2020-2021 Curling Season
October 28, 2020
Dear Curlers and Community Members,
It’s time to hit the ice for another season. We continue to build post ice plant repairs of 3 years ago. The new Curling Executive has been working hard to make sure we are ready for opening night. I thank Paul Doucet and his team for their work on preparing the ice for the start of the season.
A curling club is like a family, it will take all of us to continue to help grow and better the club for the future. When deciding who you will curl with this season, think about inviting a friend or family member to share the sport with. We need to build membership to ensure a strong future for our sport in the community of Yarmouth.
Of recent the club has a lot to be proud of. We have paid the remaining balance for the $120,000 in repairs to the ice plant. Fundraising continues so that we are proactive in making repairs so we don’t end up in the same situation. Last season we benefited from several well run provincial bonspiels. We hosted multiple fun nights and a very successful Light House Spiel. Although Covid shut us down early the 2019-2020 season was a positive one and one we can build on going forward.
COVID 19 has left us with some uncertainties but we continue to push forward. Curling is a great way to socialize and stay active. I look forward to seeing everyone at the club this season.
Yarmouth Curling Club President.
